,I . .
child spacing by the community health workers. This will help to reduce the
strain of child bearing and allow women more time for their adult educational
programmes.
2. The emphasis placed on culture and its practices has been emphasized. Women
should be liberated especially from such cultural practices that hinder their
participation in adult education programmes. This can only be achieved through
the education of women themselves.

acquisition programmes should be made available to the women in Ministries of
Women Affairs, Ministry of Employment and Productivity and other agencies of social welfare services.
